    Seriously - i'ts my first post and I'm a little tipsy. I should wait till tomorrow but for the past two days I've been living and dreaming about this phone. I kind of want to do things to it your not supposed to do to electonics.

    Ok - here is my rundown w eveything I've done w this AWESOME phone so far. I . I have two batteries and a batt charger, plus the regular charger. I had the spare chargin overnight while reg batt was in phone charging. I switched to fully charged batt and starting loggin activity. I was reading these links bout batt life.

    I have yet to figure out for myself if a task killer makes batt better. I am just a noob. I came from a BB 8330 curve which was the business. I can text like no other on that thing. W the evo I am so so. Predictive txt sometimes get in the way. Whatever it's totally worth it! i love this phone. Here is my day:


    Settings: Facebook set to never update. I refresh when I open it. 4G, wifi, BT, gps all off. Only non factory apps installed: google goggles and pandora. I only get 1 bar of signal when in my work building. Sometimes it even goes into roam
    7:45 Insert fully charged battery, booted, put it to sleep.
    9:00 New message has come in. Not gonna check it until 9:45 to see where my on time/awake time ratio is at
    9:45 Checked ratio - 2 minutes awake for like 2 hours up. 100%
    10:33 up 2:51.xx, awake 26.18 - 90% left. Checked and emailed several FB contacts. 8 txts
    10:40 sent 1 txt, received 2 txts
    11:30 Got on FB to post a message on a friends wall. And responded to another txt. Was on for about 6 minutes.
    11:52 incoming txt. I woke up the phone to read it and decided to respond later. I have weak ass signal 1 bar and I saw it go into roam for a second. 4:10:42 Up, 39:13 awake. 90%
    12:36 Browsing for some apps. For about 10 min. then I put it to sleep to eat lunch
    1:17 Checked FB email. Browed apps for some time while in bathroom. Dowloaded NYTimes and Shazam and installed both. Glanced through NYT till 1:31 back to work.
    2:06 Noticed I had a new message and I read it which led to a web link. Noticed I'm in roaming it took quite a bit for page to load. Up Time: 6:26:xx. Awake time 1:06:30. 70%
    2:18 verified last.fm user name through my phone which took a couple minutes because of crappy 3G signal
    2:59 Sent a txt
    3:50 Checked 2 txt, sent 1 txt, checked email, unsuscribed from an email. Gonna be leaving work in 15 minutes. UP: 8:17, Awake 1:18. 70%
    4:14 Leaving work. Will play pandora whole way home.
    4:40 got home. Listend to Pandora at 3/4 volume for 24 minutes plugged into my truck stereo. Also sent 1 txt. Received 2 txts. Checked email. UP: 9:05, Awake 1:40, 60% batt life left
    5:15 txts, 2 voice call more txts. Up 9:38, Awake 1:48. still in 60% batt range
    6:30 Went to some lame mobile site to dl their app so could get a $5 game for free. Browsed web for a minute. Then unistalled app since the promo was over. Txt just came in and I'm headed to a bar. UP 11:12, awake 2:05 50% - danger zone!
    7:00 met a girl at bar. Did sever al txts. Checked whether boxers need to have cropped ears/tail for medical reasons or not. Checked gimages to see if mini schnouzers had cropped ears or not. Sent several other txt mgs. It's now 1:01 am and I am checking batt. 17:21 UP, 2:28 awake. 40% left. pretty not bad....
    1:13 AM I'm drunk and heating up leftovers. I did not get laid, however I laid the ground work to pissibly get laid. She is a b+. Good body, ok face.UP 17:33, Awake 2:30. Batt 40%

    as more apps get installed maybe it will drain more batt???? I dunno

    If I only use my media player and bluetooth stereo headphones to listen to some tunes the whole day + 3 or 4 calls, I go home form work with 60% of my battery still intact. If I use 4G and watch youtube or Sprint TV, my battery goes south pretty quickly. I however have a spare battery on my pocket everytime so I'm not really concerned. :)

    OK back at work 8:13am and still 30% left. I have my spare battery with me to :) 4G sucks. I love sprint, but I hate them for making me pay $10 for something that for right now I won't use. It's fast enough without it and I have yet to get a great 4g signal when I wanted to watch youtube. I live in Dallas TX.

    @pwnst*r - I'm not sure what about my post made you think I was bored. I'm taking it personally and now I don't like you.

    You're posting drunk on the internet. Pretty obvious.

    no it's not obvious. Please elaborate as to what part about taking a few minutes to post on this forum before I went to bed means I was bored. The only obvious thing here was that I had been taking notes throughout the day with the intention of posting same notes on this forum when complete. The mission was completed when I posted and I wanted to finish mission before going to bed. It took less than five minutes to type up the intro paragraph and then just paste the notes. I'm merely excited about the new phone and thought that I would share my pretty-not-bad battery life experience. So - again, what about my post indicated I was bored, and what part about posting something on the internet, no matter your physical or mental condition, makes the boredom so painfully obvious?

    I'm down to 20% battery life after 25:41 up time. I was very worried about battery but now I feel better. Have only done about 3 minutes of work today. Must. Work. And. Not. Play. With. Phone.

    Sounds like a promising day/night on all fronts. I'm pretty pleased with the battery also. I'd have been thrilled with at least a slight step up from my IPhone 3GS, and the Evo seems to be at least that and probably more. Haven't done any such detailed observation as you though.

    Make sure to keep us posted on the chick too. Maybe you didn't get laid that night cuz you were focusing too much of your energy in the wrong place. j/k ;-)
